deFilm was conceived as an independent production company in 2009, gathering a group of young filmmakers that share common passions and values. We engage in all types of cinematic productions with diverse approaches and styles. Films such as “Ramona“ by Andrei Cretulescu, “Horizon“ by Paul Negoescu, “Black Clothes“ by Octav Chelaru, “The World is Mine“ by Nicolae Constantin Tanase, or “Marita“ by Criti Iftime were presented and awarded in prestigious international film festivals: Cannes, Locarno, Karlovy Vary, AFI, Chicago, Busan, Transilvania IFF, and many more. More recently, the stop motion animation “The Best Customer“ by Serghei Chiviriga was selected in 30 major international festivals dedicated to the genre, including Anima Mundi, Warsaw or Bristol Encounters. We are currently in different stages of development and production with four shorts, three documentaries, the features “To the North“ by Mihai Mincan and “Balaur“ by Octav Chelaru, a minority co-production with Portugal and three animations, all supported by the Romanian CNC.


CEE Animation is supported by the Creative Europe – MEDIA Programme of the European Union and co-funded by state funds and foundations and professional organisations from the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia.
